Deltek Analyst Aila Altman reports.
Looking back on the first month of 2012, health insurance exchanges (HIXs) continued to consume media outlets and fill legislators’ and lawmakers’ agendas nationwide. In Florida – the state leading the legal battle challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – two bills were presented introducing legislation to create a statewide HIX. Thus far, Florida lawmakers have made no effort to begin planning for such an exchange. However, pending the outcome of this March’s Supreme Court hearing on the law, the state may have to succumb to creating the exchange or letting the feds do so on their behalf. It will be interesting to see how things pan out for the state and other states that hold a similar stance on the federal mandate.
